  A Flowering Pear Tree stands in front of Peoria High School in memory of Darnell Hunter. The 18 year old PHS Senior died February 20th. A group of his classmates created a scholarship in Hunter’s name and turned out for the tree planning today complements of Sheridan Road Nursery. Principal Brett Elliott says the tree and the Darnell Hunter month of peace are fitting for his memory and the culture-shift undertaken at the school in the last two years.
